Thank you to everyone who helped to make Loneliness Awareness Week a success! Following on from last week, there are some fantastic resources now available to support your regular work. Find out full details below.

The resources available cover a whole range of topics, including:

  • Supporting low-income households to overcome loneliness
  • Social prescribing to tackle loneliness
  • Loneliness in the workplace

Available Resources

1. Webinar – Tackling Loneliness at its Roots

If you missed our webinar, Tackling Loneliness at its Roots: how can we best support low-income households to overcome social isolation?, you can watch it here.

Thanks again to Jenny Paton from Age UK Wirral for an excellent presentation on their work tackling loneliness in conjunction with their local hospital trust, this is definitely worth a watch.

2. Social Prescribing Materials

If you’re working on or interested in social prescribing, you can access some great material from our resource drive here.

We worked with other organisations tackling loneliness through social prescribing to pool resources, and have collated some really helpful Guidance and Top Tips and Research and Evidence material.

3. Workshop – Loneliness in the Workplace

If you missed the workshop on loneliness in the workplace, take this opportunity to look at some of the material presented and think about what you can do to support staff and colleagues who may be experiencing loneliness.

You can access these resources here.

4. Loneliness Minister’s Visit to Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire

And if you haven’t already, read more here about the Loneliness Minister’s visit to walking football in his constituency at Age UK Herefordshire and Worcestershire last Friday.

A huge thank you to everyone who worked to make the visit such a success.
